South Beach Airbnb Homes
Can’t you picture it? You and three friends polishing off a couple bottles of wine in your comfy bungalow—the pink sun setting through the wide windows—before you head out for dinner. This place looks plucked from a magazine and—come on—how often do you get to use the word bungalow, let alone stay in one? Did you have to Google it? Us too! (And we’re still not quite sure what a bungalow is honestly.)
Vacation planning have you tenser than a beanbag chair full of softballs? You, my friend, need the Zen Den, a soothing studio that features every shade of calming blue visible to the human eye. You can sleep two couples on the sofa and couch. That’ll really cut down the already reasonable $80 per night. Plus, the location is ideal.
Two bedroom beauty
This clean, neat space can sleep up to six, with its three beds and two bathrooms. You’ll get the whole place to yourself (plus the host is a certified Superhost) and you’re super close to Lincoln Road, Española Way and the beach. Wifi and a washer/dryer? Check and check.
Look. At. This. Beauty. The modern, vertical space makes the most of every floor. All the furniture is super hip and funky—and have you seen that adorable little kitchen bar? Squeeze up to eight at a crazy $150 per night. That could be as low as $18 per person, an almost unheard of rate for South Beach.
Hostels are an acquired taste but if you’re cool with sharing a room, this South Beach spot is a winner. The bright, cozy spot offers free breakfast and dinner and will house you for as low as $16 a night. That really loosens your budget up for booze, which ain’t cheap on SoBe.
Is a South Beach vacation really the time for modesty? Of course not. So book this private apartment and enjoy the racy floor-to-ceiling mural by your bed. It’ll be the perfect backdrop for all your post-beach selfies, though it could also very well scare the bejesus out of you if you get up to go pee at 4am and forget it’s there.
Staying in this apartment is like living inside a parrot. In a good way. Splashes of bright, tropical color are everywhere you look in this studio. Feel free to pack light since you have a washer/dryer and after a long day of relaxing, relax even more with a soak in the jacuzzi tub.
Platonic friends will love this studio and its double beds (so you can avoid any potential awkward sleeping arrangements). Wake up refreshed and whip up breakfast in the kitchen (which can be enjoyed at your adorable little dining room table) before walking just a short few blocks to the beach.
Adorable seashell sheets aside, we’re loving this little walk-out balcony. It’s going to be your spot to recharge with a cafecito (make one yourself in the kitchen) in the morning while you decide whether to go to some South Beach bars, hit the beach or head to the causeway to explore the mainland. All of the above choices are but minutes away.
There are certainly no shortage of things to look at in this quirky studio. The huge bed is surrounded by a small army of paintings and photographs. A narrow kitchen will do the trick for small meals and the location is smack dab in the center of South Beach.
